Chez Moi finale ... Saving the best and worst for last

I just found these amazing pictures of how the apartment was decorated when my sweet husband and I went to first look at it.
I have to give a big shout out to the brilliant Caroline of Devil and Egg for suggesting that I post my apartment one room at a time. It was great to have two weeks worth of content and I promise to make that yummy omelet that you featured. I only took some of the rooms but I think it gives you an idea of the decor. Now in all fairness the owner of this apartment was positively divine to us and gave us first dibs plus the couple who lived in this apartment were famous folk singers (They wrote and performed Those Were The Days My Friend) who had fabulous parties.


We kept the fireplace :)





Books VS Nooks




Like the cat ladder?




The Media Room?





One table VS all of this?





Wish I kept the hairdryer - seriously!




This bathroom made me feel dirty

  1. Really you did SUCH a great job on your apartment, I love it so! My favorite is the "viewing room", aka the room with the tv and computer.

    Also, I notice you changed the layout to wider! I forgot to add that you need to change the picture size but that's just as easy, here is a tutorial!

  16. Your house is beautiful, which I'm sure you already know:) What I'm struck with is how beautiful AND inviting it is. So many beautiful rooms look too perfect to sit down in. Your home appears to have struck the perfect balance of being divine on the eyes and the soul. Well done!
